    Hello, can anyone help me to identify the breeds of this years mystery hatchlings? These three are eight weeks old and absolutely huge - they are already noticeably larger than the adult frizzles/naked neck/cochins we hatched last year. The black one is crowing, so no prizes for guessing his gender!

    I should have added, the eggs were sold to me as large pure breeds (but not specific pure breeds). That said there are no guarantees are there!

    Thank you so much! It's the last one that's crowing, the ?iowa blue. So sad that the red and white is a boy too. Thanks for your help!
